I am England’s queen and those who seek to replace me will suffer my wrath.
Elizabeth in Three Queens, Two Tigers

Elizabeth Tudor, Queen of England, is one of the main characters and an antagonist. A female monarch still in her twenties, early yet in her rule. She is Mary Stuart's cousin and rival.

Elizabeth is a member of the House of Tudor by birth.

She is portrayed by the Canadian actress, Rachel Skarsten.

Early LifeEdit

Elizabeth was born to Henry VIII of England and Anne Boleyn. Elizabeth's parents married after her father broke with Rome and divorced his first wife Catherine of Aragon. She was declared a bastard after her mother's execution at age 2. She has an older sister named Mary from her father's first marriage to Catherine of Aragon, and a brother named Edward from her father's third wife, Jane Seymour.

Throughout the SeriesEdit

Season One Edit

Diane de Poitiers used Elizabeth from England as an example of a bastard child becoming legitimate later in life.

In Fated, Henry II persuades Mary Stuart to claim England's throne as her own after he announces to the court that the Tudor Queen is dying. Mary asks him about Elizabeth and her claim, but Henry makes it clear to her that Elizabeth is a bastard in god's eyes and her claim to the throne is weak.

In The Consummation, Mary realizes she must claim England before Elizabeth does.

In Toy Soldiers, Henry and Catherine tell Mary and Francis that Mary Tudor, Queen of England, has announced her heir will be Elizabeth. Henry is furious at the thought of Elizabeth getting the throne and calls Mary useless. Henry then tells Francis he will claim England for himself and will execute Mary Tudor, but first, he will first get Calais back.

Season Two Edit

Antoine informs Louis that Elizabeth wants Louis to become her husband in Forbidden.

Louis decides to take Elizabeth's offer in Tasting Revenge.

Elizabeth's proxy marriage to Condé was held in Abandoned.

In Fugitive,

In The Siege,

Elizabeth makes her first appearance in Burn. Catherine goes to England and offers Elizabeth the destruction of Mary.

PersonalityEdit

A young woman hardened too soon by life's events, but vulnerable when it comes to love. A mercenary foe riddled with compassion for her rival.

Catherine recalls in Fated that she hears Elizabeth is very cunning and has many followers. And it's mentioned by Henry that she has always thought of Mary as a threat.

Name Edit

Elizabeth is a feminine given name derived from the Greek Ελισάβετ (Elisabet, modern pronunciation Elisávet), which is a form of the Hebrew name Elisheva (אֱלִישֶׁבַע), meaning "My God is an oath" or "My God is abundance".

TriviaEdit

  • She is known as the Virgin Queen, as she never married, thus ending the Tudor dynasty with her.
